We Want to Say One Word to You: Lightsabers, Star Wars Meets The Graduate


I never really thought about it before, but Luke Skywalker and Benjamin Braddock have a lot in common. They’re both young men trying to find their purpose in life. They both get involved in a socially unacceptable relationship, and I think they both go on to become Jedi Masters. (It’s been a while since I’ve seen The Graduate, but I think that’s how it ends.) There’s no better way to show the similarity between these two great cinematic icons than by cutting footage from Star Wars with the audio from the trailer for The Graduate, and that’s exactly what One Minute Galactica did.
